17/11/21 You could almost squeeze one extra morning on Nordic skis out of the mother load Baw Baw has received but it is melting rapidly and it would be very soft indeed today.

Boodwah: Clocked Baw Baw today in sensational November (!) conditions. About 20 runs, whole resort pretty much to myself, including 5 down Champagne. Snow stayed dry until 1ish. Will post pix in BC thread later, was very pretty and wintery.
coming down the hill on his skis as we were setting out to XC ski the village Nordic Trails at about 0900 am today . The snow was according to the Baw Baw staff, the best dump they have had in 2021. It was very good indeed. We also met enjoying some post lockdown spring skiing on the Summit XC trail. I shall file a trip report with a squillion photos soon. :) https://www.ski.com.au/xf/threads/mt-baw-baw-xc-ski-day-amazing-snow-nov-16th-2021.90682/#post-4903267">Link

snowgum: With that forecast, you could be on the money, T. I could be jealous but Iím just back for 4 days around Charlotte & Club Lake - skiing big drifts - just a amazing snow cover on select faces!! Up to ~ 300m vert! You should go there while itís still good! Once the Snowy R settles down? :ski:
I am getting my XC ski gear together. I am already there at Baw Baw on Tuesday , I have left , I can't hear you any longer. XC at Baw Baw is more my speed while I am rusty at skiing after having only 7 days on planks this year due to lockdowns.

chriscross: Hi, Mr T. You were a bit optimistic about early October but that's your outlook. Glass is half full. Msg to bb day tour is a great day trip. On the right day I would join you and that may happen but, meanwhile, having done said trip from both sides (now), may I offer a brief piece of advice. In one of your posts from years past, you reported encountering challenging conditions on the AAWT around Mt St Phillack. The trail is narrow and, in places, steep and difficult. May I suggest an alternative route. If conditions are good (30-50 cm cover), it's much more fun to ski SW from the rock shelter on AAWT down into Tullicouty glen. This is only a short distance (200/250 m) but entails some short turns through snow gums and heath, so a place to practise some tele, parallel or stem/hybrid turns. In years past, I have climbed back up and done it again, just for fun. In good years, the trail is marked with temporary poles by Msg volunteer ski patrol, but not always. Easy skiing along this pretty little valley reveals a few places where it is possible to find some genuine bc downhill turns and a great place to practise and muck about, when conditions are right. On some maps, the area below Phillack saddle is called Thompsons run and , at this point, one can choose to climb back up to the main trail and take the Tanjil trail where it branches S from the AAWT. On the right, Phillack saddle is a place to work on downhill technique if inclined. Or, in good conditions, one can turn left and find a path through the Tors trail ( sometimes marked with temp posts) Sth to the main bb Village trail and hence across to bb village. Where the homemade soup at Kelly's cafe used to make it all worthwhile. But, alas, no more. If Lars the lifty was not on duty on Maltese cross t-bar, it was possible to get a lift back up to near the 5 ways junction and commence the return journey. Ah, those were the days. May they return, in some form. Enough reminiscence. Hope you get out there. CC
In 2019 I skied that exact route coming from MSG car park and hit turn around o clock near the Tors. Next time I will start earlier and camp the night before at East Tyers camp site. We can ski it together. I know the exact spot you refer to near the rock shelter. It is indeed a good run down a short hill to Tullicouty Glen and it 's an excellent place to rehearse one's ski skills skiing and turning down that declivity. Thanks for the message.

Mister Tee on XC Skis: Baw Baw has had a cr*p season in terms of snow cover during 2021. In 2019 the entire Baw Baw N.P. plateau was 50 cms deep in snow minimum.It was possible to BC XC ski anywhere. All the tall heath was buried and so were all the rocks .I did not get to ski up there during 2020 and 2021 esp. not to do my MSG to BB and back in a day XC ski tour which usually becomes feasible in late August.

Baw Baw Bear: Baw Baw will end up like Buffalo . Over priced gov rates sending clubs to the wall., then handing over the keys to an operational ski club back to the government for free . Happy day's
I accept most/all the issues around limitations. But I still see a key to getting anyone above a pure beginner/novice to return to BawBaw is installing SM (ice-makers if need be) top to bottom somewhere (Malt, Hut, or Summit). Yes itís expensive, yes it requires grants, yes plans, yes vision, yes experienced managers, tenacity, yes stare down naysayers in Govt, yes play the long game (patience), yes fix the power, yes summer grooming, etcÖyes, yes, yesÖ (what would Elon Musk do?) Hotham discovered (Summit/ Imagine) SM on a 1/3 run basically did very little when cove was poor. Or accept he Mtn will be become purely a snowplay and toboggan winter mtn (XC after only the biggest dumps) plus the usual (important) green season activities.
